My 1 1/2 year old boy will not any meat or veggies. He will only eat french fries, cereal, or snack crackers. I have even been giving him nutrition shakes, which he loves, in order to give him some nutrition.

He will sometimes (I say that lightly) eat fish sticks. He loved pb&j's in the past but over night will not touch them...

Help!!!! I want my baby to be healthy. I am at a loss.

research what are replacements, like i've heard that egg yolk is a meat replacement other wise speak to paediatrician and maybe he/she can recommend a nutritionist/dietitian

There are other foods besides meats that provide protein. Such as soy products, dairy, eggs, beans and leafy greens to name a few. It's most likely a phase that he will grow out of. You could also make him smoothies in addition to the shakes. Good luck!
